We love the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, and not only for it’s pretty exterior and great quality. This bag is known for its versatile and generous volume, and doesn’t lie about it’s name at all! Moving from one place to another, women carry their life in their bags. The Neverfull embraces this attitude towards life. The Neverfull holds everything one needs, making it perfect for both travelling as well as a stroll in the city. As we can’t think of a world without the Neverfull anymore, it wasn’t before 2007 this iconic bag was designed. It was first introduced as a seasonal bag to use at the beach, but quickly became an iconic bag that's always available.

The story between Louis Vuitton and Goyard
The story goes that the Neverfull was created to compete with the Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ tote. Both of these bags do have a resembling appearance. But, since the tote shape isn't a new design in terms of designer bags, we can't really tell who copied who. That's for you to decide!
The design of the Neverfull
The Neverfull is made with the same exquisite craftsmanship as other iconic Louis Vuitton bags, which means that your beloved bag is as sturdy as can be. Did you know it takes up to 45 hours to create a Neverfull bag? Next to its outstanding quality, the bag is also very versatile. Because, while many fans don't even know about it, the Neverfull is completely reversible! To make sure you never lose track of your keys and cards, it comes with an attached clutch. The striped interior of this timeless bag recalls Louis Vuitton’s distinct history of travel and the canvas of its original trunks. Effortlessly practical, The Neverfull is an ideal tote. But, the laces on the sides can be tightened to create a more compact, chic city bag. Next to its versatility and practicality, the Neverfull is also a strong bag. The GM model, which is the biggest model of the Neverfull collection, can carry up to 90 KG without the subtle leather handles breaking. Wow!

In 2013, Louis Vuitton celebrated the Neverfull with a new version of this iconic bag. The redesigned interior features a fresh textile lining and heritage details inspired by the house's archives. Best of all, the zipped clutch can be carried separately as a chic pochette or serve as an extra pocket. The lining in a selection of bright shades lend a pop of vivid colour to the timeless Monogram canvas.
The Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag comes in it’s classic Monogram, Damier Ebene, Damier Azur and Epi leather. It is made in a variety of three different sizes, making it suitable for every occasion.
